    [synopsis] => An exhilarating crossover between memoir and argument, demonstrating how computers and algorithms shape our understanding of the world and who we are.As we engineer ever-more-intricate algorithms to translate our experiences and narrow the gap that divides us from the machine, we willingly rub out our nuances and our idiosyncrasies-precisely that which makes us human. Bitwise is David Auerbach's thoughtful ode to the computer codes and languages that captured his imagination as a child, and his reflection of how he's both experienced and written the algorithms that have come to taxonomize human speech, knowledge, and behavior. With a philosopher's sense of inquiry and an engineer's eye, Auerbach recounts a childhood spent drawing ferns with the programming language Logo on the Apple IIe, his adventures in early text-based video games, his schooling as an engineer, and his contributions to instant messaging technology developed for Microsoft and to software built to sift through Google's data stores. His unsettling conclusion-that algorithms are standardizing and coarsening our own lives-is inescapable.
